The World Is... and Dads live set from Allston, MA 2/12/11

My band, Dads, did a weekender with our friends in The World Is A Long Band Name and somebody filmed both of our entire sets at the show in Mass. The audio and video are pretty great, so check them out!

Supercancer - Expendable Friends

Supercancer is one of the many bands who have e-mailed me sending me their music because of this blog. They are also one of the very few I've actually posted because of it. I've been talking to Paul from Supercancer a bunch via e-mail and so I'll probably end up posting more stuff from them eventually. They're a noodly emo type of band, but from Cape Town, South Africa. For the title track, basically picture a better produced Snowing with an accent. The next song is twinkly daddy acoustic, but it still rules. I'm really looking forward to what they come up with as they continue as a band. Hope you enjoy it!

The World Is... - Josh Is Dead

So somehow I forgot to post this, even after Derrick asked me to! Whoops!
It's a really great 2nd EP with the addition of a new drummer and Greg Horbal (of My Heart To Joy fame - they're really stepping up their twinkle daddy status) on guitar/backing vocals. It's a little different and more straight forward rocking, but it's super good. Especially live. And with that I bring up:
Dads is doing a weekender tour with The World Is in February. We're all really excited for it and hope some of you can come out! Here are the dates:
Feb 11 - Ship Bottom, NJ - Hertz House w/ Dads, The World Is..., These Branches, more
Feb 12 - Allston, MA - Wacky Kastle w/ Dads, The World Is..., Sinaloa, Osier Bed, The New & Very Welcome
Feb 13 - Willimantic, CT - Handsome Woman w/ Dads, Derrick's of The World Is... solo, more

Algernon Cadwallader - Live on KPSU Radio

If you're on this blog, you know who this band is. This is from their live radio set they played last night in Portland. They play two new songs, both of which song great.

Oceans - Nothing Collapses

Oceans are a mostly-instrumental band from the Chicago area that were pre-Castevet. Basically if you took the instrumental parts of Castevet, but stretched them out and sometimes added different sounding vocals, you'd have Oceans. This is another band I found out from VLV years ago, but never thought to post here. They also have a demo, which is no where near as good, but I can post that if there's interest.

K.C. Milian - Discography

Sorry for the lack of updates, we'll try to work on that! K.C. Milian was an Italian instrumental band that sounded like a simpler Six Parts Seven with occasional American Football style horns from the early 2000's. Some songs have occasional yelling vocals in the background, but they don't take away from the pretty parts at all. Really great music to kiss babes/dudes to. Choose your own adventure on that one. The releases in this file are:
"Self Titled"
"Split with La Quiete"

Rooftops/noumenon Split 7"

This is a split that came out last year, and it rules hardddd. We've posted noumenon before here, who are pretty hard mathy instrumental stuff. Rooftops are in the same genre, but with more intricate, soft parts and occasional vocals, so this 7" doesn't get boring at all. All and all, this is a pretty good 7" and the best part is that it's free on bandcamp! noumenon also has another one of their EPs for free on their bandcamp page. Enjoy!
